In partnership with the State of Ohio, the Ohio ESC Association, and Franklin County, the ESC is now assisting in the distribution of Abbott BinaxNOW Ag Home Tests for COVID-19. The new tests can be provided to individuals for at-home use, and are packaged with a telehealth session to oversee test administration, including prescription writing and result reporting. As one primary use of these new tests, the State is partnering with ESCs to make the tests available in Ohio schools, including public and private schools. Each district will make the decision about whether and how to use these tests, as well as how they will be distributed.

If you would like tests for your district/school, please contact Barbara.Harden@escco.org for more details and to schedule a pick-up time.
